Smart module company Tigo has announced a partnership with Korean electronic components developer Hansol Technics, which will see Tigo integrate its TS4 platform with Hansol’s LED Ingot wafers, inverters and solar modules.
Charlie Lee, senior director of global sales and marketing at Hansol, said: “We are working closely with Tigo to provide our customers leading technology that is both cost-effective and highly efficient. … Integrating TS4 into our PV modules is the first step in building a lasting Hansol-Tigo partnership and we look forward to further expanding the relationship to feature Tigo-integrated inverters and energy storage systems in the future.”
Since being certified in February 2015, Tigo’s TS4 platform has been chosen by multiple renewable energy equipment providers for their products. In August 2015, ET Solar announced its new slate of PV modules, known as the “ET Smart Flex,” that featured the TS4 platform, while Sunpreme’s new Maxima GxB-310 SM Smart Modules are also integrated with TS4-L optimiser solutions.
Zvi Alon, CEO of Tigo, said of Tigo’s new partnership: “We’re pleased to see the rapid adoption of our TS4 platform by Hansol. Hansol has evaluated our technology and concluded that Tigo’s TS4 is well in-line with their own business proposition to offer the market only the latest and greatest technology. With a market leader such as Hansol backing our product line, we will continue to bring customers the advantages of maximum control of system design and management at the lowest cost available.”
